The adventurers found themselves in a room presented with a choice. Two buttons stood in front of them, one of rainbow and one of stone. Choosing the rainbow button the adventurers were led to a room with three empty looking orbs, one red, one green, and the last blue. Along with each of these orbs was a corresponding button. While Bart postulated on the best course of action Arcadio rushed forward and depressed the red button, summoning forth a small fire elemental who seemed eager to do the bidding of the person who summoned it. Arcadio directed it towards the red orb where it promptly disappeared filling it with a soft red glow. The group quickly discovered that the green button and blue button summoned earth and water elementals respectively which were able to enter the orbs of the same color. After putting 2 elementals in each orb of the corresponding type a door opened leading to the next room.
The next room had a similar puzzle, but with more orbs. The orbs this time corresponded with Lava, Ice, Ash, and Smoke. After some experimentation the following combinations opened the door to the next room and collected their 100g reward:
- fire and air form ash elemental
- water and fire form smoke elemental
- water and earth form lava elemental
- earth and wind make ice elemental
In the next room the adventurers were presented with three options for battle
- Dragon Head
- Hunchback Humanoid with a Growth on its back
- Paper Humanoid
While Bart tried to open the floor for discussion, Regdar, Gorath, Arcadio, and Mal quickly decided that a Dragon would fall before their might and chose that path.
Bursting forth into the next room the group was confronted with 2 Bronze Dragon Wyrmlings, 2 juvenile Bronze Dragons, and one Young Adult Bronze Dragon. A vicious battle ensued, but the final Dragon finally fell to a barrage of Arrows and a scale rending strike from Gorath’s axe.
The Mysterious Orb appeared as the Dragons fell and spoke to Malkyr, asking who deserved a reward for winning this encounter. The group decided Baern was to have the reward for his timely aid in saving Ruscion from death during the battle. The group then moved on to the final series of puzzle rooms.
The next two puzzle rooms involved moving rocks into the proper positions to gain exit from the room. The final room required sliding between various obstacles in way that would let you reach the exit.
While it took all of their collective brain power the group solved all the puzzles and were able to move on to whatever awaited them next…
